Congratulations to Joel Deal, the winner of the Beer Knurd contest. He’ll receive a free membership into the Flying Saucer’s U.F.O. Club.
While Deal lives in Dyersburg, he’s a regular at the downtown Flying Saucer. He also knows quite a bit about beer and says that he is the rare beast who evolved from a wine drinker to a beer drinker.

One Knurd in Memphis and one in Cordova were calendar models.
